Thanksgiving is fast approaching and for me it feels like the holiday has become a week-long celebration!
The week began with a fun-filled day of fun and games at Dave and Busters with the other Top 5 contestants and co-hosts Will and Michaela and editor Nick, followed by an array of appetizers- we had worked up an appetite competing to win the games at D&B’s!
But that was only the beginning of my food-filled week; our assignment was “Eating Well” in the Ocean State and I ate VERY well. What’s even more exciting is that everything I ate was grown, raised or made RIGHT HERE in Rhode Island! I can’t wait to share my experience with you when my piece airs next week!
Today was my first full day back in my office and the “food theme” continued! A friend from Eastern Bank dropped off a whole bushel of apples – I guess I’ll be baking pies for the holidays! Next, Great Harvest Bread Co. from North Kingstown stopped by with the BEST pumpkin bread I have ever had! It was still warm and had cranberries baked right in. The East Greenwich Chamber brought over T’s muffins, Tio Mateo’s sandwiches and cookies! WOW!
Since food seems to be the theme of the week I thought I would share a recipe that I am VERY excited to make for Thanksgiving this year.
